Video: Jared Butler shows off Steph Curry range on deep 3-pointer
Jared Butler showed off some serious range in the championship game on Monday night against Gonzaga.
Baylor got off to a hot start against Gonzaga in the NCAA Tournament championship game. They continued that into the second half, where Butler made consecutive 3-pointers almost immediately.
On the second of two straight three-pointers he made, Butler launched and drained one from way beyond the 3-point line. He looked just like Steph Curry.
